By Jeff Mattas, Aug 30, 2010 2:00pm PDT The folks over at Uber Entertainment have announced that a title update for Monday Night Combat is currently undergoing testing in preparation for certification, and will be released "as soon as possible." A version of the game that includes the title updates will also be playable at this year's Penny Arcade Expo.
